    Sorry I did not realise it was only 1 Scripture not 2 when I shared this Morning so all of Isaiah 54:1 touched my Heart greatly.We remember that Book Names, Chapters, Verses and small particles were added later although some particles are added to deceive by false teachers or they delete verses or parts of them and also add to them too but God will keep His Word Pure, His Truth cannot be Lost.

    This morning I felt the pain of being Persecuted and Lied to and also about even by those I had Trusted but mostly I felt the pain of feeling unloved and unwanted by those I Loved. I cried out to The Lord and my answer was given in this Scripture. I have sinned greatly in my Life but I'm Forgiven, Loved and Wanted by my Abba Father and by Jesus my Spiritual Husband who is my Lord and Redeemer.

    In 54:1, those who are barren did not bring forth fruit unto God. In verse 5, he is the husband of his people but they were unfaithful to him when they worshiped other gods. They didn't bear children unto him meaning they were unfruitful in their lack of faith toward him. The children of the desolate are the fruit of idolatry. For those who practice idolatry, the fruit they bear is emptiness.
